Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Teen Homeschool Hang. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  2. Conditions of Membership

    1. You must agree to follow this page of rules. #
    2. You must be 13 or older to join the forum. #
    3. You must be currently homeschooled, a homeschool graduate, or have special permission from the Admin if neither of the former applies. #
    4. You must have only one membership account on the forum unless you have the consent of the Admin to obtain more. #
  3. Posting on the Forum

    1. You must not pretend to be someone or something which you are not. #
    2. You must respect your fellow members and treat others as you would like to be treated. #
    3. You may not enter or join any of the usergroup forums that do not apply to you. #
    4. You may not post anything rude, crude or overly disturbing in nature. If you are unsure of something that you would like to post, feel free to contact the Admin for approval. #
    5. No spamming. (Posting without any purpose other than to use up space.) #
    6. You may not link to any inappropriate content or disturbing material. #

    8. You may not use the message boards to sell or swap merchandise. #
    9. You may not use the message boards to promote your personal forum. #

    11. Couple pictures (you with your bf/gf or any other romantic couple relationship) are not allowed as avatars or in signatures out of respect for homeschool families who have strict dating rules. Couple pictures can be a trigger/difficult subject for younger teens who are respecting their family's dating rules. Please refrain from using a couple picture for your avatar/signature on this site out of respect for younger members who are not allowed to date yet. #
  4. Swearing

    1. Crude language of any kind will not be tolerated on the forum. Swearing does not encourage vocabulary development- there are alternative ways to express emotion. #

    3. Abbreviated swearing is not allowed. (BS, schnoople) #
  5. Penalties

    1. Violation of any rule will result first in a warning, and then restriction from the forums. #
    2. The Admins/Mods reserve the right to decide the appropriate penalty for any violation of the rules. #
    3. If a member continues to break a rule or rules, the member may be banned for a determined amount of time. #
  6. These rules are subject to be updated and changed at the discretion of the Admin.

  8. Remember that the purpose of all these rules is to ensure a fun and safe forum for all of the members. If you have an issue with any of the rules, feel free to contact the Admin.
  9. This is the small print, in case you were looking for it. If you are actually reading this, you may wish to consider a career in law.
